The results of the research activities of the Russian Defense Ministry in 2015 were presented at the Innovation Day which took place on Monday and Tuesday at the ministry’s exhibition center in Kubinka (near Moscow) and also in Rostov-on-Don, Yekaterinburg and Vladivostok, the ministry’s press service reported.


The "UDAR", unmmaned fighting vehicle was presented in Moscow during a live demonstration to show the operational capabilities of this new vehicle.

The UDAR is based on the tracked chassis of the BMP-3 armoured infantry fighting vehicle but the turret is removed and replaced by an unmanned weapon station. In the center, the hull of the vehicle is raised to integrate the weapon station.

A full range of sensors are mounted to the lower part of the turret to control the vehicle. The UDAR is fitted with the Epoch remote controlled weapon station which is also fitted on the T-15 BMP, Kurganets-25 BMP and Bumerang infantry fighting vehicles.

The Epoch turret is armed with one 2A42 30mm automatic cannon and one 7.62mm PKT coaxial machine. On each side of the turret, there is also two launchers for the Kornet-EM anti-tank guided missile. The turret is equipped with a wide range of modern sensory, target acquisition and target tracking equipment which can engage targets day and night at maximum range of 5500 m.

I can't say I'm all that hyped about this. While it is innovative I just feel like there should be someone with it if you know what I mean. I wonder if it will go on combat trials in Syria?
